Authors James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti

September 22, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The authors discuss their new book, “Where the Animals Go: Tracking Wildlife with Technology in 50 Maps and Graphics,” which uses data from satellites, drones, camera traps, mobile phone networks and accelerometers to create graphics showing how creatures such as ants, otters, owls, turtles, and sharks navigate the world.

Based on research by scientists at the forefront of the animal-tracking revolution, the book’s four-color charts and maps tell stories of animal behavior previously unavailable through standard tracking methods.

Edward O. Wilson–the “father of sociobiology and biodiversity”–has described the book as “beautiful and thrilling, a combination of the best in science and exposition, and a joy to study cover to cover.” Anthropologist and UN Messenger of Peace Jane Goodall has said, “There is no doubt it will help in our fight to save wildlife and wild habitats.”

This event will be held at the Johnson Education Center, D&R Greenway Land Trust, 1 Preservation Place, Princeton and has been co-sponsored by the library, the Princeton Environmental Film Festival and the D&R Greenway Land Trust.
